I haven't really made any significant contributions to BHW (my last post was in 2011) and I know how you guys are busy, so I'll keep this post short. It took me two years to get to the point where I'm actually making some decent cash with IM. I've worked long hours and reaped the rewards; I've made mistakes, learned from them and twisted methods until they were profitable. The purpose of this thread is simple : to teach you ways to overcome certain habits when starting a new project and to motivate you to continue working even when the odds are stacked against you. I recently started working on a new project, currently at a point where I've tested a bunch of ideas and to my dismay, none showed any significant results. I mention this because I know that 100% of BHW's members have been in this same situation...where they start thinking about giving up... And out of that number, about 99% (Pulled that out of my ass) give up, ditch the idea, and look for a new method. I can assure you that the ones that give up will do the same thing over and over...and They're the ones who never manage to make anything. Moral of the story: Don't give up...because You're a dumbass. You've wasted your time and energy on this method. You HAVE to be successful. You're a dumbass because you stake your entire life on Internet Marketing because it's the only way you're going to get into a better place and live a better life. It's you against the world, and you're the one making decisions that affect your financial situation. You're not normal because when you're struggling, you came onto BHW hoping to make some money. You've wasted time and energy. I like to think about this every time I want to give up. I like making sure that every venture I get into makes me some profit, and if it doesn't then I'll work on it until it does. The more money and time you spend working on something, the more you'll appreciate it. I remember once I had my last $50 in my bank account. Guess what I did? I purchased some programs and got to work. If I had quit, I would've been broke. You Have to succeed. Success comes in different ways and I know for a fact that once you signed up to BHW, you want to be successful. It doesn't matter where you live, who you are...it's the same for every single member on here. You once had this big ass dream of owning a nice home, providing for your family...whatever it is...you HAVE to be successful, so start acting successful; start thinking successful; start working successful; and you won't ever want to give up. Once, you get those three points into your head, it's time for you to go back to the drawing board. This is what I typically do...every single day. TEST and tweak the living shit out of that method every single day. You're going to be at a point where you have 5-10 different landing pages up testing out all your ideas. TRACK all the data you can possibly track. If you can track where someone clicks on a page...do it. If you can track where someone goes after they visit your site...do it. Data = Potential Money...and the more data you have...the more money you can make. TEST AGAIN - you've stored/tracked all the data you possibly can you'll want to analyze the data and make adjustments to your campaign. Let's say someone lands on your site, they click a download button, and leave as soon as they see a content locker...you'll want to test different ways to keep them on your site longer. THINK you started IM because you're smart, so you definitely need to start thinking about different ways to scale campaigns/methods. If you follow everything I listed above, then you'll have enough data to make solid decisions and you'll be able to come up with different ideas to test I hope I didn't ramble and I hope I helped you make some money. If you have any questions, comments, additions, feel free to add them below. PLEASE NO PM's I'll probably not even bother to read them.
